About the Blue Book


Go, go, go up yonder
Go where words will take you
Where thoughts are ladders
Into heaven’s library
Go up, go up
Up the ladders
Through the clouds
Where books light up
There stretch out your hand
Take hold of the blue book
There lies what you ought to write
Pulling down stories
From heaven to earth
Bringing praise to God
By making known
His words
Go up the ladder
Beyond your mind
Lose track of your thoughts
Get lost in the words
That long existed
Before you were born
Waiting in time for you to pen
Write what you see
Write what you hear
Write what you touch
There write about
Messengers of God
Whose hair does not burn
Though they are in the fire
Though they are fire
They neither smoke nor burn up
Write of light without shadows
Write of sparkling jewels
The size of mountains
Close your eyes
Write these words
As inscribed in the blue book
The angels have opened to you
Write of what is
Yet remains unseen by the carnal mind
Write of what was
So that we will know how we can be
Write
Write of what is to come
Write
Because words
Become worlds

Inspired by a joke by Isi De Gesirgney” about the blue book”, inspired by Esme Schmitt’s vision of “heaven’s library”. Written for every writer who longs to translate heavenly activities in earthly languages.

Cornè Jacob's Ladder


Centered in the midst
Of an angelic symphony
Encircled
By a whirlwind
Of peace and power
You are the one
Who abides in His presence

You have become
An angelic attraction
Your head moves
Sometimes to one side
Another time to another side
As though alarmed
Ducking angels wings
If you opened your eyes
You would see
That in fact heaven
Is right around you
Angelic activity
Moving from heaven to earth
Faster
Than
Jacob’s ladder
Releasing revelation
Heavy laden with heavenly gifts
Leaving them at the foot of the ladder
Where you are
Around you
Anyone who sees
Can walk away
With whatever they need
From heaven

His voice surrounds you
Like water spinning around you
You stand
In a whirlwind
Of God’s voice

Nicole the star


In a few words
Nicole is a star
That shines brighter
Yet refuses to be a lone star
She is a star that knows
That the heavens
Are far too vast
For one lone star
So she shines her light
Drawing other stars
Calling them to shine with her
From every corner of Africa
Brightening the African sky
She knows that Africa
Is blessed
With
Many
More
*stars
Whose light
Must be SEEN
The more stars shine
The more we see
She follows
The voice
That said
Who are you?
Not
To be
Great?
